No, you do not have to own a hot Lamborghini and a chain of Hilton hotels to get me into promoting you in here. All you have to do is knowing the right way and right time to BRIBE me. Some people need no effort in doing that but a lot will have some practice to do.
On my way back from Cyberjaya to UUM, we, the UUM debators were bribed big time with dinner in Ipoh.
We were served:
The delicious NASI MINYAK. You won’t be satisfied with only one serving of that. If you think that this is not enough, do not think again because there were some other accompanying dishes to spoil us for our taste.
The CHICKEN CURRY. The best I’ve eaten so far. The gravy is so thick and aromatic, with the perfectly cooked chicken and potatoes, that this dish is best taken with the nasi minyak or even with plain rice. I can virtually taste it in my mouth (taken with BARIO rice from Sarawak) while typing this.
Do not be deceived by the simplicity of this vegetable. The one chewed by Bugs Bunny and the white flower-like vege which I suddenly forgotten the name, were just fresh. We couldn’t find these in UUM. Even if we do, the colour and structure of these vegetables are so mutated that they are beyond recognition. (I am not kidding!)
Indian and DHAL are inseparable like music and melody. Excuse my French, I suck making up metaphors. Well, the dhal here taste so wonderful that one of us actually refilled her rice 3 times! (Not me, I dig curry!) This dhal is purely vegetarian. And it tasted better than the non-vegetarian ones!
I’ve never savoured RASSAM before and before I took them, I was told that this is something like a tomato soup. When I tasted it, it was as though I was having an orgasm! Sour and aromatic! This soup is simply to-die-for! I am seriously craving for it when typing this!
The man and woman behind all these yummylicious food are none other than:
My fellow debator, Habibah (in brown)’s parents (in white and red respectively). The two guys behind are her brothers. Habibah’s parents, indeed, cook the best halal food in town. I am so going to visit them again if I drop by Ipoh. Thank you Habibah for the great dinner. Thank you Uncle and Auntie, you are the best cook! Next time I’m going to taste something else.
Just in case I forgot how the shop looks like, here’s a picture I took:
But I cannot remember the exact address or landmark around this place.
